Basso Diamante Frameset
This frameset is a special order from Basso in Italy and has an approximate delivery time of 4-6 weeks. The frameset comprises of:
- Basso Diamante frame and fork

The Diamante utilizes Toray T1000 and T800 HI Modulus carbon fiber pre-preg. A widely used fiber in the automotive, aviation and military industries, our Toray is made even more resistant to impacts and fatigue stress through our use of specific proprietary resins.
The “monolithic” front frame section, made by the semi-integrated front fork / frame / stem / headset, provides a more aerodynamic and aggressive position, ideal for ProRacers; for those who require a less “stretched”, more raised position, a conical shaped spacer is available (comfort kit). The conical shaped spacer rests on the base of the headset and effectively raise the stem without losing the linearity of the headtube form. Additionally, a new upper fork shape has been developed to virtually stretch into the lower part of the frame allowing the steering stresses to be discharged over a wider surface and thereby facilitating manoeuvrability in challenging curves.
- 2Fit - The frame can be used with mechanical or electronic group.
Wind Shape - Aerodynamic shapes for maximum air penetration
- Blade Front - Semi-integrated front fork/frame/stem/headset for improved aerodynamics
